Death to My Hometown


Auteur/Compositeur : Bruce Springsteen

Texte chanson

Well, no cannon ball did fly, no rifles cut us down No bombs fell from the sky, no blood soaked the ground No powder flash blinded the eye No deathly thunder sounded But just as sure as the hand of God They brought death to my hometown They brought death to my hometown Now, no shells ripped the evening sky No cities burning down No army stormed the shores for which we’d die No dictators were crowned I awoke on a quiet night, I never heard a sound The marauders raided in the dark And brought death to my hometown They brought death to my hometown They destroyed our families, factories And they took our homes They left our bodies on the plains The vultures picked our bones So, listen up my sonny boy, be ready when they come For they’ll be returning sure as the rising sun Now get yourself a song to sing And sing it ’til you’re done Sing it hard and sing it well Send the robber barons straight to hell The greedy thieves who came around And ate the flesh of everything they found Whose crimes have gone unpunished now Who walk the streets as free men now They brought death to our hometown, boys Death to our hometown Death to our hometown, boys Death to our hometown
